New membership option for 2018

*Updated 1st Nov: amended Terms of Membership* Following feedback from clubs and members, we have revised the Terms of Membership to clearly show the differences between the main British membership option and the additional Scottish membership option. (A separate, more detailed document for clubs will be available shortly). We have also added a Privacy Statement. The new Scottish option will be available to existing and new members from 9am on 1st November 2017, and is suited to those who only orienteer locally and who won’t be participating competitively in major events outside of Scotland. There is further info and joining links on the Membership page.
